A unique overview of Roger Ballen's oeuvre in the context of Art Brut, as well as the catalogue to the first major exhibition of his work in France.
The World According to Roger Ballen, co-authored with Colin Rhodes, looks at Ballen’s career in the wider cultural context beyond photography, including his connections with and collections of Art Brut. It features photographs selected from across Ballen’s career, along with installations created exclusively for the exhibition at Halle Saint Pierre and photographs of objects and works from Ballen’s own collection of Art Brut.
Organized thematically, with texts by Colin Rhodes and an introduction and interview with Ballen by Martine Lusardy (the Director of the Halle Saint Pierre), The World According to Roger Ballen is both a catalogue of the first major exhibition of Ballen’s work in France and an exploration of Ballen’s positioning within and relationship to the wider art world.
